Cartagena, Colombia: history, music and shopping

Its colonial history, cultural riches, fine sand beaches, conveniently located airport, and cornucopia of festivals attract tourists to the walled city of Cartagena all year round. With everything it has to offer, it’s no wonder it’s one of Colombia’s top travel destinations.

Architecture and history

Cartagena is one of the few fortified cities in the Americas, with well-preserved walls. They encircle centuries-old colonial plazas and buildings. They shelter historic and modern museums, like the Museo del Oro y Arqueologia and the Palacio de la Inquisicion. A stroll down the calle (street) leads to the Cathedral and La Popa convent. History buffs must pop into Las Bovedas to see the 23 dungeons.

Outings

Renowned for its modern and luxurious hotels, Cartagena is also a city with a lively nightlife full of dancing and music. Numerous festivals are held here throughout the year, most notably the Hay Festival Cartagena, the Cartagena Music Festival, the Cartagena Film Festival and the Cartagena Carnival.

Cuisine

Vacationers who choose Cartagena are spoiled for choice when it comes to restaurants and local patios. In addition to international gourmet fare, diners can enjoy traditional dishes like patacones (fried plantains).

>Shopping

What could be better than shopping in Cartagena’s most commercial neighbourhoods, like Getsemani and La Matuna? The ideal place for picking up some unique Colombian souvenirs!
